Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 finally gets Android 2.1

Upgrade lands, but is it too little, too late for the SE flagship?

Sony Ericsson has finally brought Android 2.1 to the Xperia X10, ending months of speculation and delays. The software boost at last brings the X10 into 2010, with Google Goggles, continuous autofocus for HD video, five homescreens and improved backup options.

In addition, the X10 Mini and Mino Pro are both feeling the Android 2.1 love, as Sony Ericsson looks to push its Android blowers in the run up to Christmas.

However, questions will surely be asked about why it’s taken so long for this upgrade to make it into the wild. And with rival efforts rocking Android 2.2 already, and Android 2.3 set to debut this week, it appears the X10 still has a lot of catching up to do.

Is this upgrade enough? Or has Sony Ericsson already lost out to HTC and Samsung in the Android smartphone stakes? Tell us what you think on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
